Tasting Notes

If you haven't tried the wines from Benanti, this is an excellent introduction to their white wines from Mount Etna. This comes from the east and southeast of the mountain and is made from younger vines of Carricante.

Staff Pick Notes

I love all of the Benanti wines. They are terroir-driven, robust and uniquely beautiful expressions of the Sicilian landscape and native grape varieties. Personal preferences aside, I can recommend this wine for other reasons. If fruit forward whites are not your thing, this Carricante might hit the spot. This wine is driven by stony minerality and is saline. Dare I say there’s something reminiscent of aspirin on the palate? Hints of lemon are in the mix, but more so as an acidic complement than a fruity addition. Try pairing this with Swordfish Palermitano or Portuguese sardines in tomato sauce.
